Pervy Hobbit Fancier.

Hobbit feast was much fun. It was nice to just hang out and be a geek for a day. There was so much food!I think we had just the right number of people. Well there was one we could have skipped but everyone else was great. The food was good. The movies were great as well. Hey i am bored lets kick Gollum!

Sunday was fun with Adam running his Gestalt game. V and J sitting in on the game was neat and Reese had us all laughing as usual. Adam runs a good game and is always fun. Mage in the game is a bit odd to play as he is the utility character in many ways. He is to cautious to pull out all the stops in combat often when he does he can be deadly but for the most part he is a utility character and the characters like Lara's and reeses do ungodly combat stuff. Though Ryans new character is disgusting. I mean he is absurd in the level of damage he gets in close combat. This game though I came in to a fight where i kind of pulled the gloves off. nothing funnier than watching a demon run from you. It is sad we dont get to play the gestalt game more often but I know it is a lot of work for Adam so i do understand why we dont. But they are a lot of fun when we do.

I am running rifts this weekend and then it is Eberron again the weekend after that. This will be the actual session of playing rifts as the last Rifts session was making characters. I hope the actual game play rolls well for folks.

There has been talk of doing the linked game with V's World of darkness game. I think it could be a lot of fun and I want to do it. I will present to my gaming group. Would you guys be interested in another game run by me involving some horror elements and a post apokoliptic earth with vampires and demons?

As to debates and such. I think most of my friends know I love a good debate. The more I argue with someone the more I learn. Even if it is learning the point of view of those I oppose I will still learn something. I apreciate the occassional person who doesn't mind a good discussion.

NaNoWriMo (http://www.nanowrimo.org/)

NaNoWriMo is coming quicker and quicker it seems. I am working on the outline for my attempt this year. I am basing mine on the Dawning Star back story and it is the tale of the exodus from earth. It should be fun. I still have to do some character studies after i do the outline. NaNoWriMo is the national novel writing month in november. Every year the goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in the time frame between november 1st and november 31st at midnight. For some this is easier than others. With my work schedule and other things takign up my time it is not an easy task for me but I shoot for it anyway. last year I got about 10,000 words. I want to actually complete it this year. Is anyone else interested in trying this year? It is a fun thing to try and share. The website has handy places to keep track of you rok everyday on word count and forums with people doing it around the country.

I am still trying to come up with this years title for my work. Maybe Rise and Fall of the Dawning Star.

oh well back to the grindstone.

wit and wisdom of the clown prince of crime.

As though we were made for each other... Beauty and the Beast. Of course, if anyone else calls you beast, I'll rip their lungs out.

I now do what other people only dream. I make art until someone dies. See? I am the world's first fully functioning homicidal artist.

Now comes the part where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But, as my plastic surgeon always said: if you gotta go, go with a smile.
